The more I learn about North Korea, the more thankful I am that I don’t live there. It is my definition of hell on earth. I do know some South Koreans and they are very nice people. It’s too bad their brothers and sisters are subjected to the life they are forced to live.

Unless you have lived in North Korea, we have no idea. Nor do they, probably, as they have never experienced anything different. Read the book "The Girl With 7 Names". Enlightening!

Social class depends upon loyalty to the ruler(s)? Sounds pretty trumpian. Also trumpian is ignorance of every subject. But he is a consistent liar.

What about USA? A leader that is letting the people die of Covid 19 through self interest and ignorance. A leader who also has a weird hair style and who pretends everything is fine. Wake up people.
